The comments say that is Willie Dixon on bass too.

This reminds me of how much I love Pigspen and how much left with him. The boogie band you said for sure, but much more too like Empty Pages, maybe the last song he wrote.

That's true. But he would have had to keep up somehow with the rest. You could write a screenplay about how the Dead would have been if he had become healthy. :)

Btw, liked the original better. This version is more of a sway. Shows you what 15 years can do.

Here is a nice one from Pigs with Keith from the Felt Forum 71

The screen play would be fiction but I would write/welcome a lesser role for Bobs, though 72 and 73 were good years for him and new songs.
